Team story

[p][b]MIA Mental Health[/b][/p] [p]2017 will see the launch of a new Isosec app, MIA Mental Health. MIA Mental Health is clinical mobile app to improve efficiency and patient care for mental health pathways. A rapid observations app is used to make observations on a tablet device, rather than on paper. Previously, notes had to be rekeyed into the Trust’s EPR, a duplication of tasks for the clinician and wasting valuable time. MIA Mental Health will sync notes automatically, use colour coded notifications to show which patients need attention, plus everything will be geotagged and digitally signed for better compliance and information governance. We have seen such amazing benefits and savings with [url=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZeA7fHr3f2w&t]MIA Maternity[/url] and hope that our current work with Mental Health professionals will benefit this area of healthcare in the same way.[/p] [p]To celebrate the launch of MIA Mental Health Isosec have chosen Manchester Mind as our Charity of the Year 2017.[/p] [p][/p] [p][b]About Manchester Mind[/b][/p] [p][url=http://www.manchestermind.org/]Manchester Mind[/url] (registered charity number 1102058) was established in 1989. They are an independent charity providing support for 4,000+ people experiencing emotional or mental distress across our city.[/p] [p]In Britain in any one year, 1 in 4 of us will experience a mental health issue. Poor mental health can affect anyone – rich or poor, young or old, at work, within your family or circle of friends. It can shatter the lives of the people affected and the lives of those close to them.[/p] [p][url=http://www.manchestermind.org/]Manchester Mind[/url]‘s aims are…[/p] [ul] [li]Address the effects of poverty, insecurity and poor physical health on mental health[/li] [li]Help people to manage their lives and to make positive choices with skill and confidence[/li] [li]Promote and create opportunities for people to contribute to their communities[/li] [li]Provide information and advice to people to meet their needs and raise awareness about mental health within our city[/li] [/ul] [p]Their services tackle the root of poor mental health e.g. isolation, poverty, poor housing, lack of access to services, stigma and discrimination, lack of confidence and skills, or aim to help people to improve their quality of life if living with a long-term mental illness. [url=http://www.manchestermind.org/]Manchester Mind[/url] recognises people’s strengths and involve people in the services delivered to ensure they remain relevant and helpful.[/p] [p][/p] [p][b]What We Hope To Achieve[/b][/p] [p]In 2016 Isosec raised £1000 for last year’s chosen charity, [url=https://www.bliss.org.uk/]Bliss[/url]. Through [url=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DxLd3csfP50]our work with Bliss[/url] we improved care for families with premature babies. Together we introduced a checkbox into our mobile app [url=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dumBjKQ0Vms&t]MIA Maternity[/url] so Midwives were reminded of the family’s specific needs. This year we hope to do the same for better mental health care.[/p] [p]We climbed Scafell Pike in August to raise awareness and funds for Manchester Mind. It's an uphill struggle and we wanted to challenge ourselves for those who struggle in day-to-day life with mental illness.[/p][p]Our Mindfulness Mountain Challenge was about appreciating nature, exercise and healthy living through Mindfulness and we used some of the techniques we’ve learnt from Manchester Mind to get us up that mountain![lt]br /[gt] [lt]br /[gt] Please donate whatever you can to support us with our challenge! Each member of the team is very passionate about this cause and we’re working hard to make sure the challenge is a success and Manchester Mind gains all the support they deserve.
